Presented by the University of Oxford and the University of Cambridge.
As founder members of the Russell Group, this session will explain what the universities of Oxford and Cambridge offer, with a particular focus on how they differ from other UK and international universities. It will provide an insight into student life at the two providers, and how to identify if you would be a ‘good fit’ student who is likely to get the most out of the distinctive education system offered. It’ll also provide detailed advice on how applicants can maximise their chances of success, in a highly selective and competitive system.
There will be an emphasis on the aspects of an Oxford or Cambridge applicant's preparation that most heavily influence their prospects of success, such as choosing the right programme of study, meeting the academic entry requirements, engaging in wider reading, and revision, or other preparation in advance of any interviews, tests, or written assessments.
Common pitfalls that undermine applications will be explored and the presenters will attempt to dismantle some myths about the universities and their selection procedures.
This webinar is designed to provide you with an introduction to Applying to Oxford and Cambridge. We will be hosting a small Q&A session at the end of this webinar with the panelists, but we highly recommend also registering for our virtual event, Meet the Russell Group on Wednesday 7 October. The virtual event will provide you with lots more information, and you'll be able to chat directly to representatives and ambassadors from all 24 Russell Group Universities to ask any questions you have.
